More cable gloriousness! Loved the cables from the River Wrap so much had to use them for a pullover. It is so intriguing to watch theses cables form! Come join the obsession and cover yourself in warmth and beauty! Just in time for fall, River Jumper would be a great sweater for Rhinebeck!! The wonderful cables are from Norah Gaughan’s book Knitted Cable Sourcebook. The lovely yarn is Carol Feller’s Nua which has the perfect stitch definition and drape for this piece.

This drop shoulder pullover is constructed from the top down. The upper back and front are worked separately down to the underarm, where they are joined. Then the body is worked down to the ribbed hem. The shoulders are seamed after the body is completed so you can make the neck opening fit as desired. They are joined to create an exposed seam, They can be seamed with right sides facing if a hidden seam is desired. Stitches are picked up around the armholes to work the Stockinette sleeves from the top down. The length of the body and sleeves is easily adjusted.
